Sample text

Clinical Application of Self-Instructional Training 57 Jabichuk and Smeriglio also used a cognitivebehavioral treatment approach with preschoolers who had low levels of social responsiveness (1976). Two modeling films were equated for visual and auditory information and differed only in whether the soundtrack was in self-speech (first-person form) or in narrative (third-person form). The films showed an isolated child playing alone, then approaching peers, and finally interacting with them in a variety of situations.

The self-instructional training was supplemented by social and token reinforcement, with the tokens Self-Instructional Training 45 faded in the final sessions. Internalization of the selfinstructions was evident in the children's increased ability to control motor behavior by coordinating verbalizations and motoric responses and by the extension of the skills to novel tasks such as scrambling sentences. Improvement was evident by a reduction of errors on both the Matching Familiar Figures Test (MFF) and the POlteus Maze, as well as by improvement on the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) spelling and reading subtests.

He found that those impulsive children who received self-instructional training manifested a significant increase in the number of their total looks at each of the alternatives in the MFF and that they were more systematic in checking the standard picture. In short, following self-instructional training the impulsive children's performances in both the Finch et al. and the Goodman studies approximated those of their reflective counterparts. Thus far each of these training studies has been limited to short-term training, with no specific attempt to influence or assess long-term effectiveness.
